Over The Rainbow Yarn

Think you might be the fastest knitter in Maine? Yes? Put your skills to the test at this quirky event at the Maine Lobster Festival.

No? We’d love to have you join us anyway! You never know, maybe you’ll win, or maybe you’ll just have a good time. You’ve got nothing to lose!

Participants should meet at the North Tent at the Maine Lobster Festival (Harbor Park in Rockland, Maine) on Fri. 8/4 at 1:30pm for the set-up for the race. That’s 1/2 hour earlier than the beginning of the race!

Race-viewers, fans, and cheerleaders should gather for watching the race at 2:00pm. There will be chairs, and there will be shade under the tent. Mim Bird will be directing and announcing at the race.

The winner will receive a free knitting cruise with Mim Bird aboard the Schooner J&E Riggin in June of 2018. Several other excellent prizes including knitting kits and gift certificates for Over the Rainbow Yarn will be awarded. Participation is FREE, and entrants will receive a Lobster Festival entry bracelet at the gate.
